#Throwback Thursdays – The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
Throwback Thursdays is where I talk about one best seller released 10 years ago.
This week for Throwback Thursdays we have The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
I read this book several times and enjoyed it. Leave your thoughts on the book in the comments.
Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination, but an answer.
In heaven, five people explain your life to you. Some you knew, others may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie’s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his “meaningless” life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: “Why was I here?”
I personally felt this book will make Christians think. Think beyond there usually aspect of Heaven.
Currently on Goodreads there are over 12 thousand reviews and over 2500 on Amazon. Ten years later it looks to still be selling in the top 5 thousand on Amazon.
